Thunder lose opening game to Blazers
Kevin Durant and some other guys were hurt. There was only so much Westbrook can do by himself against a good team.
The Oregonian: But for all his explosive dominance in the first half, the second half told a much different story for Westbrook. He scored 10 points in the third, bringing his total to 36, but noticeable fatigue of carrying his team for 27 minutes had set in by the fourth quarter. "I think Westbrook wore down," Portland center Chris Kaman observed. He managed just 1-of-6 in the fourth quarter and shot 4-of-13 for 12 points in the second half after a blistering 26 points on 7-of-13 in the first two quarters. The Thunder as a team managed just 12 points in the last 12 minutes.
